Natural-Gas Fueling Station Unveiled in Newark

Garbage trucks in northern New Jersey may soon be cleaner — on the inside, at least.

A facility in Newark’s East Ward where recycled municipal solid waste is converted into electricity is now the site of a compressed natural gas fueling station.

Wednesday marked opening ceremonies for the project by Covanta Energy Corp. and Clean Energy Fuels Corp.

It’s hoped that the city of Newark will replace its fleet of garbage trucks with those that burn compressed natural gas over the next several years.

Compressed natural gas costs less per gallon than gasoline or diesel and reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30 percent in some vehicles.
